Sponsored by the Security and Sustainability Theme @ RHUL


We’re very eager to gather together on April 2 for the workshop. Many thanks to everybody for preparing their comments and selecting film clips in advance, it is a wonderful and eclectic set of films and approaches.  Please see the posts (under ‘category’ in the right hand column) for each panelist’s commentary and clips. We are positive there will be new insights for all.
